1958 Cadillac Runs & Drives After 15 Years & Commentary
I'm proud to say I have resurrected this car. It sat in a car port for 15 years but now she "runs like a sewing machine." New Exhaust pipes, carb from another car (63 Pontiac), rebuilt wheel cylinders for the brakes, new brake hoses, front end stabilizer pins and a few other things. Now she rides like a, well... Like a Cadillac!.. Next will be cleaning the fuel tank and fixing the fuel gauge...
Resurrecting a Classic Chevy
This is my 1968 Chevy Caprice. It was the very first car I ever worked on
as a Student of Auto Body way back 20 years ago. Since then the car has
lapsed into obscurity after the transmission went all kerflooey and sat
under a cedar tree for 16 years. The needles destroyed the paint, the vinyl
top was not replaced when the car was originally fixed, and the interior
was ruined when the top gave way. The car had about $3,000 put into the
engine (a 327 ci 275 hp engine that is original to the car) and the car
overall has about 87,000 original miles. As I stated, the car has sat for
the last 16 years and we dragged it to its current location, put a battery
in it, and after some tinkering, it started right up. It has a whole tank
of $.99 gas in it and it runs smoothly. The peck you hear in the video is
an Exhaust leak. If you have any
questions, drop me an e-mail.

How to Repair a cadillac engine that overheats
On this video I'm repairing a 2002 Cadillac Deville 4.6 lt northstar
engine. Customers complaint was that the cars temperature would be good at
idle but once the car was on the road it would overheat
1958 Cadillac Runs After 15 Years!
I bought this Cadillac and it hadn't run in 15 years. It was missing the
carburetor and the previous owner I guess thought that was the problem.
Well, the carb was lost by the mechanic over the years. I borrowed one from
a 1963 Pontiac parts car I have. Turns out the fuel pump was bad but I got
it running in 20 second spurts with a gravity feed. I used a funnel, a hose
and filled it with gasoline. It worked until the gas ran out but it was a
good way to test a few things. At least I spark, compression and oil
pressure and that all the valves were opening and closing.
